Replaces the simple zoom for weapons without scopes with full iron sights. It doesn't simply use an image, the front and back sight actually line up in the center of the screen over the crosshair. There is a new option to remove the crosshair.

The final release of the Iron Sights Mod. It includes all of the most recent features and fixes and should be glitch free.

At long last the final release of the Iron Sights modification for Far Cry version 1.4 has arrived!The mod includes:-Fully functional iron sights for the M4, Falcon, Jackhammer, MP5, and M249.-Faster transitions in and out of iron sights.-Higher mouse sensitivity while zoomed.-New recoil animations when zoomed.-A red dot sight for the P90.-Smooth transitions in and out of all scoped weapons.-Menu options to disable iron sights or crosshairs.
Though it doesn't incorporate everything I had hoped for, it's highly functional and, in my opinion, a solid improvement to the game. I won't be doing any major work on it from here, but of course if you find glitches or problems or if you would like to use it in a mod of your own, please let me know. I would love to see it enjoyed.If you utilize the iron sights mod in your own project, I would appreciate some form of credit or recognition, and I would be more than happy if you linked to this video or any other media I have published.

Here's a short trailer. Pardon the dub-step, it was fun.

Yeah ok thanks for pointing it out. I already did a lot, so it seemed pretty good to me, but maybe that's just because I was used to it being quite deplorable. I'll let you know if I can update the download.

First of all, I want to congratulate you for all the work you've done with this mod, it's amazing, but if I may, I would like to correct u one thing; I have found that there is an error in the animation to "swim" in the OICW assault rifle. happens that out of the water (with the OICW in automatic shooting mode) the player does not restart ur animation that takes the gun. (I think so far is the only one with the same error)
to understand me, I illustrated it with a picture:

by the way, one more thing, I have been designing my taste texture for the look of the P90 as I felt very 'poor' (no offense) if u want to see as I go, then here I leave another image:

I doubt u get to read the comment, but do not lose anything on trying, FarCry is one of my favorite franchises, and what u've done is simply magnificent, this leads me to ask u a question only, u have not thought to follow 'improve' this mod?

many greetings! =) Sorry for my bad english.

Interesting glitch with the OICW, and nice looking re-texture of it as well! I think I've seen the error you're talking about before, and I'm not sure it was actually cause by the Iron Sights mod. Frankly it's been too long for me to remember. Unluckily I've poured myself into other things, so I would rather not come back and re-invest in a smaller glitch. This is not to lessen the catch though; thank you very much for reporting it!

As for the P90 scope, my original intent with the modification was to be as un-intrusive as possible. I think that's a very good scope texture, but it also draws more attention to itself, which isn't what I was aiming for. However, I would be willing to maybe make it an optional addition if you would like to get more involved (and are still interested in the project).

P.S. I'm glad you like the Mod!
